Book launch: Viet Thanh Nguyen presents 
A Man of Two Faces: A Memoir, a History, a Memorial
In conversation with Lisa Hsiao Chen
Tickets $28 (book included)

Greenlight and St. Joseph's are honored to welcome Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Viet Thanh Nguyen to celebrate the launch of his new release, A Man of Two Faces. Named one of the most anticipated books of the year, Nguyen rewinds the film of his own life. He expands the genre of personal memoir by acknowledging larger stories of refugeehood, colonization, and ideas about Vietnam and America, writing with his trademark sardonic wit and incisive analysis, as well as a deep emotional openness about his life as a father and a son. A Man of Two Faces explores the necessity of both forgetting and of memory, the promises America so readily makes and breaks, and the exceptional life story of one of the most original and important writers working today. In conversation with Lisa Hsiao Chen, please join us at St. Joseph's for what is sure to be a glorious celebration.
